KATZ--Lewis. The Board of Governors, Trustees, staff and members of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) wish to express their profound sorrow over the sudden passing of our dear friend and colleague Lewis Katz. Lew was a true humanitarian who cared deeply about kids, and gave so much to so many, including to Boys & Girls Clubs across the country through his longtime active service on the BGCA Board of Governors. He founded the Boys & Girls Clubs in his beloved hometown of Camden, NJ, and was currently playing a leading role in supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City. Lew's generosity of spirit will always be remembered by all who had the privilege to know him. Our heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to his children Drew and Melissa, and all of Lew's family and friends. Boys & Girls Clubs of America Ron Gidwitz, Chairman James Clark, President
